Superfecta Sunday on Sunny Dirt

Off we go on a tremendous Superfecta Sunday to the sunny Florida dirt.

Gulfstream Park Race 11 {1 1/16 mile~3 year-old~Allowance Optional Claiming}

A talented group of eight will go to the gate in this late afternoon feature. There are six Triple Crown nominees among the crew. Plenty of speed is present to maintain an honest pace. The speed figs are all very close which should make a highly competitive event. Our task is to string together a winning 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket.

#6 Kelly Tough (P. Lopez / Plesa) might have the edge with the second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and two powerful peaking workouts. This lad will be making his third career start after landing in the money in his two previous. He is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$1 SHOW.

#8 Azar (J. Velazquez / Pletcher) will pose a mighty challenge with the highest last out speed number coming in a stakes race. He is mounting a two race progression and has put in two hearty workouts. His six career starts have all come on the turf. He should use his tactical speed to his advantage.

#5 Avast Matey (Lanerie / Nicks) should contend with a couple of good last out speed numbers, a three race progression, and four serious peaking workouts. This guy is 100% in the money over the Gulfstream track from three starts. He should be tracking the pace closely as he stretches out to this distance.

#4 Dissident (Castellano / Pletcher) is another that will transferring from Turf to dirt. He holds the fourth highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and two sound workouts. This lad could find himself mid-pack ready to move into the turn.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)

#6 Kelly Tough  +  #8 Azar  +  #5 Avast Matey  +  #4 Dissident.
